Now I converted the texture into a grayscale image and fixed some errors, like black moles. They needed to be white because they had to push the surface. Then I opened ZBrush and loaded my grayscale image as an alpha image. I chose Mask by Alpha and used the Inflate option, which can be found in the Deformation palette. Make sure to do Morph Target before doing Inflate. The amount of Inflate was about 5 in my case.

Then I used the standard brush to add more depth to some wrinkles and I also used my morph brush to remove the inflate effect in some areas like the ears and eyelids, because they looked too fatty now (Fig.15).

Here you can see the final normal map of the face (Fig.16).

For the specular map I used the base photo layer with a cavity on top. Then I added a bit of a Noise filter in Photoshop and changed the overall color to blue in order to get a bluish tint to the skin. I also added some highlights to the nose, lips, cheeks and forehead (Fig.17).
